Hello from Ohio, about an hour north of Dayton

Post by Deerwester » June 10th, 2019, 11:52 am

Hey all, I've bee smoking for a long while and have enjoyed modifying my store bought budget smokers to perform at top level. Ive lived in a few different parts of the USA so i have a mixed bag of tricks up my sleeve when it comes to cooking lol.

But I love to fabricate and have recently come across 10 food grade 55 gallon drums, I want to make a nice over under barrel smoker. I'm tossing around ideas right now, going to be starting a thread on the topic. I have seen a few on the interwebs, but they arent what i want. they are more of a grill with two flutes connecting the barrels and 2 chimneys. I'm torn between trying to design a reverse flow over under style, or a more traditional style over under with a low chimney on the opposite side of the cooking chamber from the heat.

anyways nice meeting yall.

Remember the easiest work you do is with a pencil and eraser.

If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?
